About Revolut

People deserve more from their money. More visibility, more control, more freedom. And since 2015, Revolut has been on a mission to deliver just that. With an arsenal of awesome products that span spending, saving, travel, transfers, investing, exchanging and more, we've helped 45+ million customers get more from their money. And we're not done yet.

As we continue our lightning-fast growth,‌ two things are essential to continuing our success: our people and our culture. We've been officially certified as a Great Place to Work™ in recognition of our outstanding employee experience! So far, we have 10,000+ people working around the world, from our great offices or remotely, on our mission. And we're looking for more. We want brilliant people that love building great products, love redefining success, and love turning the complexity of a chaotic world into the simplicity of a beautiful solution.

About the role

Step to the forefront of innovation with us and become a vital part of the Revolut FinCrime department as a Backend Software Engineer. Join a team of determined engineers driving the development of cutting-edge engines, such as real-time AI decision solutions, workflow management systems, and company-wide ML empowerment tools.

Our engines aren't just powerful. They're the pulse of our operations — scalable, low-latency, and vital to maintaining critical business pathways — which fortifies the security of more than 500 million Revolut transactions a month.

But it's not just about numbers. Our complex, full-stack solutions serve as an essential part of Revolut's internal infrastructure and extend as foundational internal tools across the company to mitigate financial crime risk. Despite the groundbreaking work we're doing, we prefer ‌a minimalist approach to using external frameworks, with an emphasis on maintainability and fast turnaround with TDD, DDD, and Continuous Integration and Delivery.

Our technology stack:

  • Java 17
  • SparkJava
  • GCP, Kubernetes, Grafana, Prometheus, NewRelic
  • PostgreSQL, Redis
  • JOOQ, Flyway
